Jeff The Pink Penguin

by Nielz - Jam Entry

You’re playing as Jeff, a pink penguin with a gun.
In our game there erupted a very unexpected, zombie “something” in Jeff’s garden, which made zombies continue coming out of nowhere…
Jeff is pretty clever so, the first thing he does is running into the garden, locks the doors so he can’t come back in, and then starts shooting at the zombies…

(The zombies can’t come anywhere else in the world, than the backyard)

Some guy continues, throwing guns and strange steroids down at Jeff as he’s running around shooting zombies…


You can play the game in the “Unity Web Player”, here “Link“.

Use “W-A-S-D” to move, and “Left Click” or “Space” for shooting.

ENJOY!

Controls were kind of hard to manage, but the minimalist graphics were well used and the explosion effect was nice.

i love the clean minimal style you have going on here :D
if anything needs to be touched up, i'd say the controls were a bit clunky to get used to (the turning)-- but after that, this is a really solid game!

Loved the penguin. So simple, yet recognizable right away.

It feels a bit punishing to die right away when you get hit. The controls made it quite challenging because turning is a luxury you don't have time for most of the time (not without moving forward / backward), but you sometimes have to because you use it to aim as well.

Nice game overall!

(btw: I could not keep the iframe version above running in fullscreen, on click it would exit fullscreen again)

Nice graphics.

Turning is painfully slow, though! I don't think this control scheme works well.

I'm sorry about the controls, the rotation used to be slower though, and we tried to fix it.

Thanks for the feedback, I'm really happy about that!

Nice work, clean design, I just wished the controls were a bit more responsive.

Cool game. Better if the penguin turns a little faster. Sound would improve things a lot.

We made a second one (not for the Ludum Dare), and improved some stuff based on the feedback!

If you want, you can find the second one, on our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jeff-The-Pink-Penguin/993718020645432?ref=ts&fref=ts .

Thanks a lot for the feedback! ^_^

Would have to agree with some others that the control scheme is a little awkward, but it's pretty fun otherwise, well done!

Link was broken for me too but I went to the parent web site and played.

Pretty nice! Powerups add a nice variety to the game. I don't mind the tank controls, reminds me of Resident Evil haha. But yeah, the game was fun, if not original. Would love to see your next game with more graphics and sound too!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
